After a week of unseasonably warm weather including temps in the 80's, I was happy to see some clouds and cooler temps over the weekend.
And cooler temps today and tomorrow too, with highs only in the 50's! Woohoo! Love it! And then we'll get even COLDER this weekend when we head to Flagstaff where the highs are only 30 and that includes some SNOW in the forecast! Yay!! We are all ready for our snow play and have everything, well except boots, to keep the kids toasty in the snow. Little Man walked around the REI store with his gloves and hat on (his hat that is size 6-12 months but he refused to take it off so thank goodness it was on sale for only $4, he wouldn't even take if off for them to scan it so I had to pick him up and they scanned it on his head...). He kept repeating I'm ready for snow day! After having them try on gloves I asked them 'Think you can build a snowball with that?' Then they attempted to scoop up a snowball on the concrete and they excitedly replied 'YEP!!'. Funny.
I must admit I am so looking forward to sledding! I love sledding and I think the kids are going to love it too. We'll have to pick up some hot chocolate to enjoy when we get back to the house. I just feel my face burning after coming in from being outside! I love that feeling!
I am looking forward to a short work week and then enjoying some sight seeing of things we haven't seen yet around town. I am really hoping we do go to Taliesin West in Scottsdale. It's a Frank Lloyd Wright house.
